Foo Fighters - "Rope'

From the Album 'Wasting Light'

Standard Tuning

Tabbed by jjhand

 

I believe I got the solo correct now, from what I can hear from Chris

Shifflet's guitar. I reworked a couple other riffs using youtube footage.

Thanks to other ug tabs of 'Rope' for a starting point. Please Rate/comment.
